Take One Action Film Festival

Take One Action Film Festival 1

Take One Action Film Festival returns to Edinburgh and Glasgow, 18-29th September, to celebrate the people and the films that are changing the world!

With the state of our planet – and the interactions between some of its inhabitants – sending many of us into a pit of despair, our screenings and events offer a much-needed opportunity to understand, celebrate and harness our power for positive change. The films we present do not shy away from stark realities, yet there is joy and inspiration to be found in the commitment, resilience and solidarity at the heart of the stories we share. Meet the teenagers channelling their love of science to respond to environmental threats faced by their communities, the woman fighting to abolish modern slavery in the Thai fishing industry, the female politician refusing to give up on her dreams of a better democracy in Afghanistan… The 40 films and dozen events that make up this year’s programme offer an urgent reminder of the role we can play in shaping our world for the better.

We are so proud and excited to invite you to be part of these journeys of change.

Take a seat. Take a stand.
